Florida Governor Ron DeSantis seems to be sharpening his attacks on his potential White House rival Donald Trump.

While taking a swipe at his fellow Republican's legal woes, DeSantis said in an interview to "stay tuned" when asked about his rumored presidential ambitions.

He leveled veiled criticism of the "underlying conduct" behind the former President's alleged affair with a porn star.

The Governor and Trump have been shadow-boxing ahead of the 2024 Presidential election, reported BBC.

Trump allies slammed DeSantis' latest remarks on Tuesday amid Trump's legal woes.

Currently, a grand jury in New York is considering whether to recommend charges against Trump over a 2016 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep mum about their alleged affair.

TV personality Piers Morgan said that when he asked DeSantis to contrast his style with Trump's, the Florida governor said that the way "we run the government I think is no daily drama, focus on the big picture and put points on the board."

He was also asked about Trump's nicknames for him like Ron DeSanctimonious. For the Governor, it's "just background noise."

He said that it's not important for him to be fighting with people on social media and that it's "not accomplishing anything for the people I represent."

As for the hush money scheme involving Trump and Daniels, DeSantis said that there had been "a lot of speculation about what the underlying conduct is."

He shared that is purported to be it, and the reality is that's just outside his "wheelhouse."

On Monday, DeSantis angered supporters of Trump when he said that he doesn't know what "goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair."

A spokesman for Trump said that the latest criticism proved that DeSantis has "terrible political instincts".

Taylor Budowich said that while the entire conservative movement is united against the "unjust indictment of President Donald Trump, Governor DeSantis is choosing to go off half-cocked and take shots on some low-rent vlog."

Apart from talking about Trump, in the new interview with Morgan, DeSantis also said that if he participates in the White House race, he could defeat President Joe Biden.
